Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation announces 3rd Nobel Museum exhibition

DUBAI, The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation, MBRF, is organising the third annual Nobel Museum exhibition in February under the theme, “The Nobel Prize in Physics: Understanding Matter”.

The event is held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Foundation, which has signed an agreement with the international Nobel Foundation to organise the exhibition in Dubai, making it the first-ever Arab organisation to hold such a high-profile global knowledge event.

The 2017 edition of the Museum thrusts the field of physics into the limelight; physics allows humanity to dissect and understand natural resources, and to invent ways to benefit from them. The Nobel Museum this year also explores the universe from a physical point of view: going from the smallest elements of matter (atomic particles) all the way to the universe as a whole.

This year’s edition of the exhibition seeks to find new and improved ways to transfer knowledge and spread it to all segments of society. Additionally, the exhibition will introduce the public to the discoveries and scientific achievements of Nobel Laureates in physics, which have played a significant role in improving people’s lives.

Jamal bin Huwaireb, Managing Director of MBRF, said, “Once more, the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation strengthens its ties with esteemed global knowledge-centric organisations. These relations serve to consolidate efforts to create projects and initiatives that help disseminate knowledge around the world. For the third year in a row, we are organising the Nobel Museum in Dubai as part of our long-term relationship with the Nobel Foundation which allows audiences to see how knowledge can be used to improve the world we live in.”

“This event underlines Dubai’s leading position and the forward-thinking vision of our leadership, represented by Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum,” bin Huwaireb added. “Our leadership is keen on organising more of these events that emphasise the importance of creativity and innovation, especially among the youth.”

Dr. Olov Amelin, Director of the Nobel Museum in Sweden, lauded the collaboration with MBRF, adding that the Dubai exhibition will introduce audiences to the field of physics and its role in explaining natural phenomena. He hoped the exhibition would inspire young Arabs to contribute to future discoveries in physics.

The Nobel Museum 2017 is made up of eight different sections: Rays and Waves, Matter, Stars and Universe, Quantum Physics, Electronics, Cloud Chamber, Laureate Arena, and VR experience.
